How It Works

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Premiere Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment
During your initial consultation, we will learn all about you and the tattoo that you would like to remove. We will get your medical history and discuss any skin problems or other issues that can have an impact on your immune system. We will then examine your tattoo and find the location, size, color and density. This will allow us to give you an estimate of how many sessions will be needed for removal.
At Chicago Tattoo Removal Now, laser energy is gently applied to the skin over the tattooed area. The laser shatters each ink particle into much smaller particles than can be eliminated through your body’s natural process. Through a series of treatments, the tattoo will fade and ultimately disappear. With our MedLIte Q-switched laser treatments, very few side effects such as scarring or bruising are seen.

The number of treatments that you will need for removal will depend on a variety of factors, including:
  • The depth of the ink
  • The location of the tattoo
  • The quality of the ink
  • The size of the tattoo
  • Your skin type
If the tattoo is an amateur tattoo, it can often be removed in just one session. Professional tattoos that are multi-colored though, may take more than 10 sessions. Most tattoo removals are accomplished in 3-10 sessions. The length of each treatment is usually 2-10 minutes and will feel like a rubber band snapping on your skin.
